Volkswagen is planning product-onslaught to improve its sales across major segments. Most of the manufacturers are moving towards electric models but traditional combustion engines won’t die immediately as full EV market is still sometime away which is why Volkswagen is planning to introduce a number of new generation diesel and petrol engines.
